"To achieve the realistic finish on this canal bank lock gate recess, I began by applying a base coat of brown paint to simulate the brickwork. Once dry, I used a lighter shade to carefully highlight the individual bricks and give them a three-dimensional appearance. For the mortar, a wash of grey was applied, ensuring it seeped into the recesses to enhance the texture and depth. To bring out the details and add variety, subtle weathering effects were applied with a fine brush and a sponge, focusing on areas that would naturally show wear." - Stuart
